Grant Proposal: Nissan Foundation (BDPA Los Angeles)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) worked closely with BDPA Los Angeles chapter to request a $2,000 grant from the Nissan Foundation. In the United States, Nissan Neighbors is a community-focused initiative dedicated to improving communities through charitable contributions and in-kind donations to nonprofit organizations working in three focus areas: education, the environment and humanitarian aid.

BDPA Los Angeles SITES Students
BETF asked Nissan Foundation for partial funding of the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program in Los Angeles. The objective of our SITES program in Los Angeles is to effectively use technology to stimulate and sustain the interest of young people in science and technology. This program is perfectly in synch with Nissan's focus on education. SITES works with children from disadvantaged backgrounds to provide them with science, technology, engineering and math skills development needed to be productive, engaged members of our future workforce.

We should have an answer for BDPA Los Angeles chapter president David Malonson from Nissan Foundation within the next month.   BETF continues to seek funding for any interested local BDPA chapter. In the meantime, I encourage you to support the BDPA Los Angeles chapter by making a secure online donation today!
